Sure…Unsure [OOTD]

My day isn’t over sooo I don’t have much to report for the afternoon. I went to bed super late (4:30am!) yet surprisingly I’m not very tired. I did nap at Hurricane’s house prior to driving home so that probably had a lot to do with the insomnia. It also didn’t help that I was on Tumblr last night reblogging almost everything cute I saw. I’m addicted!

I didn’t do very much last night. I hoped to see the latest episode of Bad Girls Club but the rerun aired before I had a chance to get to Hurricane’s house! I did see the tail-end so I’ll have to catch it another time. I didn’t think I’d like this show as much as I do. However, I don’t understand what the girls are competing for. From what I gather, they are in the house due to their “Bad Girl” reputation, yet the minute they hit someone in the house, they are sent home. So they can only be a verbal bad girl?? Also, I’ve yet to hear of them mention a prize. The last season ended with about 4 girls left in the house and they got into a huge fight. The season’s reunion episode didn’t mention any other girls getting thrown off the show! So I dunno. All I know is it’s pretty interesting. One girl from a past season likes to say “Pop off son!” Hurricane & I love using that phrase, haha. I’m by no means a fighter (except when I’m furiously angry), I just love saying it.

After Bad Girls Club I watched The Game. This is another show I took awhile to get into. My other friends were in love with it and I just figured it was another dumb show. That all changed when I watched a million episodes (gotta love those marathons!). So I figured I’d watch this season since I liked last season. I dunno what the hell they did this time around but I don’t like it as much. One of the characters, Melanie, is much more of an airhead than before. I found her slightly annoying in the last season and now I can barely stand her! I love Tia Mowry but I don’t like her character. Apparently she wanted to be an MD and all that was put to the wayside when she married the football player. Or maybe she has her license and doesn’t practice? Now she has a contract with Essence (or is it Ebony??) magazine. She just doesn’t seem to have much substance to me. The other girls have some interesting backgrounds and aren’t as annoying. Plus, the jackass, Malik, really irks me. It seems as though they are taking his jackassness to a whole new level. He’s relentless with it and won’t give up. I need for them to have an epiphany and change his attitude. Last night’s episode ended with his arrest for driving drunk & assaulting an officer. Maybe his jail stint will help him gain insight. I kind of doubt that will happen though… We’ll see *shrug*

So my outfit today is one I’ve worn before. I’m bored with how I usually wear it so I need a new way to style it! I was unsure about lace tops yet I found this one at NY & Co. for $7 so I figured I would try it since it was so cheap. So far I like it a lot, yet I’ve only worn it under one of two cardigans. I have the pink one (below) and a mustard yellow one. I need a blazer badly! I saw a boyfriend blazer on sale @ Target for $10! TEN DOLLARS!! I’m doing the No Spend January challenge but I didn’t care, I was definitely going to buy this. HOWEVER, the stupid arm holes were too friggin small! It was a 2X, which is usually my size in jackets, yet the holes were small enough that I wouldn’t have been comfortable moving around. My arms have always been my “problem area” since shirts/jackets can fit everywhere else and my arm flab prevents it from fitting almost perfectly. I’ll keep searching for a blazer. I may have to bite the bullet and order one from Torrid. I’ve become such a frugal shopper since I graduated college. Plus, sometimes I don’t feel the prices at Torrid reflect the quality of the clothing. Don’t get me wrong, I love their stuff. I just don’t like how clothes/accessories can tear and break so easily. When I first started working for them, I bought a cute shirt and my fingernail tore right through it the 2nd time I tried to wear it! >.< Not. Cool. Torrid has really good sales though so I’ll try to catch the next one!! I used an actual camera this time! Next step: find a better background!

So going back to a point I had about the outfit (Tangents are my specialty)…I was trying to decide if I like it better w/ or w/o the scarf. I like the scarf because the color is so pretty & I think it goes with the outfit well. I just feel like I have too much around my neck and feel all…stuffed. It’s cold out though so I’ll definitely wear it outside. I don’t always do the belt around the cardigan deal since it feels awkward to me. I need some skinny belts. They look cute on a lot of plus size girls. I guess I’m just afraid they’ll get lost in my rolls..ha! Seriously though – I’ll try it out. Maybe next time I’ll remember to take off my badge… =\

MAN I just realized I didn’t have my jewelry on! I took it off to take pictures of them and forgot to wear it for the outfit pic! Oh well – you (all 2 of you lol) get the idea.
